Well, that wasn't so bad...

I had my mammogram today. Thank you all for your input, and you were right, it wasn't bad at all. The technician was awesome and made me feel really at ease, she wanted to know if I had any questions, complimented my tattoo :), and was very easy to chat with, which is important in order to stop feeling so self-concious about standing there with one's boob hanging out in the open like that and getting handled by a stranger. The worst part was for the side picture, the skin under my arm and over my ribs was pulled pretty tight. But even that didn't exactly hurt, it was just uncomfortable.

My appointment was at 4pm about 20-25 minutes away. I left in plenty of time to get there, but I was a little concerned with how long it would take me to get home. The ride back would most likely be in rush-hour traffic, and I also needed to stop at the pharmacy and the grocery store on the way home, and I wasn't anticipating getting home until after 6 or 6:30. BUT the appointment was really quick. I was out of there by 4:15. Traffic was better than I anticipated, I was back in my town, through the pharmacy, and parking at the grocery store by 4:45. When I left the store to go home at 5:15, it was still light out!

So, over-all, today was pretty much better than I thought it was going to be.
